The long-term care residents at Sewell’s Jefferson Health Care Center got together to show support for local students who are missing out on in-person graduations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Jefferson seniors created signs with their own graduation dates and alma maters to say congrats to the class of 2020. You can see the photos below!

 

 

Some of the residents even offered some words of wisdom. Betty Arrera, a 1955 graduate of Philadelphia’s John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls’ High, said to the 2020 graduates, “Living through this tragedy will make you stronger in the future!”

Gerry Carson, a 1954 graduate of Camden’s Woodrow Wilson High School, wrote, “Don’t be sad about not having a graduation. When you look back on this in the future, you’ll be unique because this has NEVER happened to anyone else before.”
